Dream Interpretation

I took a year-long dream interpretation class from a Jungian therapist, and found it unbelievably fascinating. I agree whole heartedly with those who have said, "Forget dream interpretation books. They're useless." And just think how close you'd come to having a new Tarot deck with the money you save.

I have two tips from that class:

The subconscious likes to play on words and phrases. For instance, one time I dreamed that I was riding on a train with a couple of people. It turned out that I felt I was being rail-roaded.

About remembering dreams -- sometimes I don't work with dreams for a while, and sure enough I find it nearly impossible to remember them. The instructor suggested that I write down any minute detail I could remember, even if it was just a feeling. Sure enough, after a while, I could retain my dreams at least long enough to write down the whole.

One more thing. Whenever we'd report a dream to the class, the first thing the instructor would ask is, "What feeling did it leave you with?" Like fear, or anger, or love, or whatever.

Good luck! Dream interpretation is, usually a lot of fun, and practically always provides the dreamer with insights into her life.

Goddess Bless,
